“Today, at the public charity organization ‘Multifunctional assistance’ in the Belokalitvinsky District, the Chief of the MIA of Russia Division for the Belokalitvinsky District of the Rostov Region, police Colonel Vyacheslav Zemba solemnly presented the passport of a Russian citizen to Raisa Aleksandrovna Shuvar, a participant of the Great Patriotic War,” reported the official representative of the MIA of Russia Irina Volk.
The 94-year-old Raisa Aleksandrovna arrived in the Rostov Region in July 2014 from the city of Lugansk. In October 2015, she received a certificate of temporary asylum, which was extended several times. A few weeks ago, the Department of Migration of the MIA of Russia GA for the Rostov Region issued the pensioner a permit for temporary residence in Russia. Then the woman applied for the passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation. Vyacheslav Zemba wished Raisa Aleksandrovna good health and long life.
“This event, which was so significant for the veteran of the Great Patriotic War, became possible thanks to the great work done by the Russian MIA employees and journalists of the Russia Today TV channel in the framework of a joint project to assist the compatriots, who have found themselves in a difficult life situation, in acquiring the citizenship of the Russian Federation,” added Irina Volk.
